April 12 BOD Meeting Agenda

We urge all to read the agenda and attend the meeting if at all possible.  There are many important items to be discussed and the more homeowner involvement in these meetings the better.  If you are so inclined to express your viewpoint or ask questions on any of the agenda items we would encourage you do so during the homeowner comments portion of the meeting.

Of particular interest are New Business items 7 a,b,c, pertaining to SOA Board control turnover and expansion to five members, as this will be a significant event affecting all Somersett homeowners. Also, items 7 e,f related  to filing a Complaint of Damages against Summit Engineering and Moana Nursery for the rock wall and irrigation system defects.  This action being done pursuant to Nevada Revised Statute NRS 116.31088 1(e), a copy of which is also available on our reference page and the link below.

One thought on “SOA Board of Directors Meeting

  1. It must be noted that the PUD document written by the Developer, Blake Smith, includes the phrase: “To encourage and again lead by example the Club at Town Center pools SHALL HAVE (emphasis added) a thermal solar pool heater installed within 1 year of approval of the PUD Amendment” (which was approved by the Reno City Council and recorded on 03/12/2009.

    Blake has still not installed this required heater.

    I have looked through several dictionaries and I have not found where the word INTENT used in the March 21, 2012 letter to the Board by the Association’s attorney, Eva Segerblom, is a synonym for SHALL.

    Ms. Segerbloom states: “The developer’s INTENT (emphasis added) in the PUD was to provide SOME FORM (emphasis added) of solar heating mechanism for the pools, not strictly a solar generated heater.”

    Owners can only wonder why the developer didn’t say, “To encourage and again lead by example I intend to install a thermal solar pool heater at the TCTC pools.”

    In a letter dated July 28, 2011 Blake stated: “the Board determined that the most cost effective means for the Club and the Association was to have thermal solar blankets to heat the pool when not in use.”

    Why is the Board even considering an obligation of Blake’s and why is Association money being used instead of his money? Don’t forget he and his employee control board voting.

    Tough economic times don’t lessen one’s obligations and with his Subsidy money there is enough for him to follow through on his PUD obligation.
